Hi! I'm Jenn Buman

Since 2007 I've been helping seniors and their families simplify their search for senior housing. Over 1,100 families have benefited from my approach in matching seniors to the right facility and care. It all starts with your unique situation and needs.

And, I've personally experienced the emotional turmoil of finding the best care for a loved one. My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011.

I'm dedicated to helping your family as if you were ​mine.

What Our Clients Say

Thank you for all your help. Mom's thriving in her new place. She loves the people. We love the great care she's getting.

Kathy R. - daughter

“I am so thankful for the guidance & assistance provided by Jennifer in finding a senior living facility for my 88-year old Mom.  She met Mom and quickly understood her personality, lifestyle, hopes & fears about relocating. Jennifer showed us four places in our area and helped us ask the right questions. After moving, Mom smiles and laughs more. She's happier, more relaxed and loves introducing her new friends to me.

Jennifer made a daunting process very simple.”
